What causes gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia stems from hormonal imbalance, enlarging male breasts due to excess oestrogen or low testosterone. Obesity may also cause pseudogynecomastia, from excess fatty tissue.

Conditions contributing to male breast enlargement:

  • Adrenal tumours
  • Alcoholism
  • Kidney disease/failure
  • Klinefelter syndrome
  • Liver disease
  • Thyroid disease

Medications treating various conditions can also induce gynecomastia, such as those for anxiety, infections, heart issues, and substance abuse. Certain drugs like amphetamines, marijuana, and anabolic steroids, along with lavender and tea tree oils, may also lead to breast swelling.

Treatment for gynecomastia offers several techniques tailored to the severity of the condition:

  • Combination technique: Utilises both liposuction and excision for comprehensive results.
  • Minimal scar technique: Employed to minimise scarring, often with smaller or inconspicuous incisions.
  • Laser-assisted liposuction: Utilises laser technology to liquefy fat before removal, enhancing efficiency and reducing trauma.

Consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon helps determine the best approach based on individual needs and goals.
